Am I? I have never been quite sure what the term means but never though of myself as one! Reverse splitter is high GPA lower LSAT?

Splitters have LSAT over the median/GPA under the median. Reverse splitters have GPA over the median/LSAT under the median.

There are more high GPAs than high LSATs, so splitters are more rare than reverse splitters.

Gotcha. Thanks for clarifying :) I don't think I actually realized that whether or not you're a splitter may differ from school to school.

Well, it's kind of both. Like, I'm a splitter at NU. But to Harvard I'm just an idiot with terrible numbers.

I do not know how you pre-2013 apps have dealt with the wait for this long. It's only been seven weeks for me and everyday I can feel myself getting closer to punching the nearest baby.

Those of you that went Held > Accepted, did your status date change?

don't blame it on the babies. I feel you though. It's a rough thing to have to do.

Aside from the 1-year-deferral and ED packages, most of the money comes out in a big rush over a couple of days. Last year it was around April 1. (Mar 30-Apr 2, if memory serves)

O.my.g. Full scholarship. To say I am floored would be an enormous understatement.
